ISLAMABAD (APP) – Ambassador of Denmark to Pakistan Ole Thonke has said that a Danish energy company working in Rajanpur district of Punjab would add 250-megawatt wind electricity in the national grid before the year 2018.

“A Danish company working in Punjab on a 1000 MW wind power project, will be able to produce 250 MW electricity before the year 2018,” he said while addressing a seminar titled ‘Efficient Power Generation’.

The seminar was recently organised by the Ramboll A/S Denmark, a leading global industry leader, and Elan International in collaboration with the Danish embassy here.

The envoy said the renewable energy was an inexpensive source of power generation and his country would extend all possible support to Pakistan in meeting the electricity problems.

“Through private sector engagement, the government of Denmark is facilitating support to Pakistan not only for energy production but also for policy reforms, safety enhancements and load and grid management.

Danish and Pakistani companies can forge partnerships in the variety of sectors to benefit from each other’s competence.”
